Cozy, comfortable and convenient; we felt well served by the excellent staff and luxurious accommodations for our one night stay during the recent stretch of challenging extreme weather in this part of the country. The rooftop bar was just the ticket for a light meal and a cocktail after a day of sightseeing once the torrential rain put the kabosh...

Delightful boutique hotel with gracious service. Very welcoming and lovely views. No pool or spa, and fitness center is quite small, but if you don't use these and want a quite inn with a Euro feel, this is the place for you. Gourmet grocery nearby, and hotel restaurants are good. Not much else on Mud Island. Beale St. is a...

We would definitely choose this hotel again next time we stay in Memphis. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and competent, especially Stacy. The room we had, overlooking the river, was huge, immaculately clean, with all amenities. Shower, sink and bathroom were modern, clean. Area and room were very quiet, which is important to us. There is a library on...

River Inn is such a treat! So close to downtown Memphis, yet so peaceful and relaxing. The rates are totally justified for such a gem of a property. To begin, everything is included in your rate (rare for a 4-5 star property). Parking is free, WiFi is free, gym access is free and best of all, a full breakfast is...

Best of European Small Luxury hotel ambiance with plenty of Soutern hospitality and charm. Staff from management to housekeeping went out of their way to insure our stay lacked for nothing. Spent entire weekend there without necessity of leaving. Wonderful on premises amenities. Fabulous Restaurant, Paultte's, for breakfast and dinner. Food is Devine. Best breakfast selections served in beautiful Paulette's...

This charming hotel near the river in Harbor Town is like staying at home. The food at Paulette's was amazing, and the room had the most comfortable bed on the planet. There aren't many rooms, so you will need to book ahead. The staff and service are excellent! Also, don't miss out on a cocktail at their Terrace, where you...

We had booked a Dream Bed Package with breakfast and facing the river and on checking in as I Prefer members we found we were upgraded to a Penthouse Suite (one of two on the top floor) which was very nice. The room was a good size and we were advised that all alcohol in the suite was complimentary, so...

Stayed here for one night on business because the TA reviews were so positive. It's in a quiet neighborhood that wasn't quite easily walkable from downtown, but has great access to walking paths along the river. The room was very gracious and I loved the free glass of champagne at check-in and port and chocolate with the turndown service. I...

I stayed at the River Inn of Harbor Town over the St. Jude Memphis Marathon weekend. Upon arrival, I was welcomed by the staff at the front desk and immediately offered a glass of wine. The general atmosphere of the lobby was extremely charming with its Christmas decorations, the roaring fire in the fireplace and the piano player playing Christmas...

I recently stayed there for a business retreat and loved it. The staff was fantastic, the food at Paulette's was delicious as always, and the rooms are very comfortable. Katie with catering made our meeting flawless, especially when she acted on her feet when we weren't happy with the original conference room. The River Hall is a perfect meeting space...
